Just before Christmas, I came across a tutorial for the perfect Christmas present for Grayson. He loves to make forts to read in, so I thought this Hanging Tent Tutorial from kojo designs would be perfect!
I finished this on Christmas Eve, but just got around to taking pictures! Here's how Grayson's looks hanging in his playroom today:
The tutorial is VERY easy to follow, with awesome instructions and pictures. Anyone with a basic knowledge of sewing would be able to make one pretty quickly!
I did a few things differently:
- Using ribbon ties in all four corners, plus one in the middle of each "side" of the tent.
- I left off the retractable awning, instead I overlapped the fabric at the entrance to make it fully enclosable.
I love sewing for my little boy - especially something that encourages his love of reading!
**Don't worry - the playroom isn't as spotless as it appears! It just happens that the corner the tent in was clean! :)
